MONROE HIPS

Monroe Hips is a band masterminded by one Gib Lyn (latterly known for his work with pioneering act The Witches). This album is a self and collaboratively produced, collection of songs that play on his flighty lyrics and enigmatic guitar style. None of the songs are overstretched and are entertainingly brief but replete with thrilling ideas. “Limbo” is cinematic, romantic and tuneful whereas “Try To Decay” is a semi-acoustic yet psychedelic infusion of 60’s pop and rambling, sparkling indie. The theme threads into “The Most Beautiful She” where the sweeping strings and sparkling guitar picks, plumb into the late career highs of Lennon and McCartney. “The Girl With Potential” is spiked with Gib’s guitar as a focal point as his vocal sways across the song with an enticingly smooth verse and gruff, compelling chorus. Gib Lyn has made this album as interesting as he could, but it’s the bigger tracks that also point to something more remarkable – a sound so big and determined it would be difficult to imagine it had been put together completely off the radar and from within the city’s underground scene. An accomplishment and an incredible collection of scene breaking ideas.
